Chelsey’s Letter to the Future Citizinvestors of America
We are hiring two interns for the Fall 2013 semester to work alongside the Citizinvestor team at our office in Tampa, Florida. In order to give you a taste of what a Citizinvestor internship is like, we asked Chelsey Keenan, our Summer Intern/Community Partner in the City of Philadelphia, to write a letter to those of you considering applying for this fall’s internship. Here’s what Chelsey had to say!
Future Citizinvestors of America,
So an opportunity presents itself to you: For the fall semester you can apply to be an intern at Citizinvestor! Which of the diverged roads do you take?
As a present intern for Citizinvestor, my humble opinion is to apply right this minute to have the chance to be chosen as an intern for this community-loving, and innovative company. I first heard about Citizinvestor after one of my professors at The University of Tampa saw founder, Jordan Raynor, give an awesome TEDx talk in Tampa, FL.
I casually met with Raynor and co-founder, Tony DeSisto, to find out more about the company and the position. I knew right away that having the opportunity to be a part of Citizinvestor was truly something special. Raynor and DeSisto made me feel so welcome to the Citizinvestor family and have been nothing but inspiring and admirable mentors throughout my internship.
I have not felt like an intern while doing my work, but rather an actual building block in this quickly emerging company. I was able to go out into the field and actually network, try to recruit petitions, and promote community involvement rather than getting coffee or sorting files. Not only did I feel comfortable and understood while working with Raynor and DeSisto, but I also felt optimistic and energetic.
Due to the passion, dedication and creativity of the Citizinvestor team, Citizinvestor is really going places in the near future, and to be an intern within the first couple of years of its’ blossoming can be something that I, and possibly you, can stamp as a huge gold star on a résumé.
Imagine being a part of the development and growth of not only a “next big” company, but also the development and growth of the community that you reside in and care so much about. You will not just have an internship, you will have a Citizinternship, and that, my friends, is something to be truly proud of.
If you have any further questions about the internship or the company itself, do not hesitate to contact me, Chelsey Keenan, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
